In the good old days, when ubsin'he ilowcd freely, and Paris was the i lavcroiin I cf the world, these same voting men might have knocked at Cupid's door in France until their hair turned grey. With neither for tune nor reputation to favor thorn, no French father in his right senses would have considered for live min utes their pretentions to the hand of his daughter. In those forgotten times only six years ago. by the calendar marriage in France was no laughing matter. In fact. It was etrlctly business, and business of the most serious kind, requiring the services of a couple of corporation lawyers, a squad of no tary publics, a private detective or two, a certified accountant, and possi bly an alienist and a medical specia list on heredity. Endle family conferences preced ed the betrothal of a young couple. Father met father, and mother met mother, time and again, before the tentative details of the marriage ret tlnment could bo agreed upon. The family lawyers and doctors were call- ed into conference to render learned opinions r-i-l we advice. The family trees were n-lni'tely studied In search of possible bars sinlstre.
